North Tyneside Council Measles Advice



A Churchill Community College Sixth Form student has been presented with a prestigious prize by Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove. Student Paul Baird was awarded one of nine runner-up prizes in the Lord Glenamara Memorial competition.

The Prestigious Lord Glenamara Memorial Prize rewards academic performance, citizenship and an interest in history, politics, or public service, for young people in the North East. Paul was presented with his award at Imperial  College, London this week.

 Churchill Community College nominated Paul because of a number of achievements; he secured nine A grades and two B grades at GCSE, and also plays an active role in school life and North Tyneside’s Youth Council. Paul is particularly passionate about  inter generational work and youth engagement and recently completed the Youth Voice Award, spending his own time working to make sure young people’s views are heard

.Paul said: "It was such an honour to be nominated by my school for such a prestigious award, and an even greater honour to be selected in the top ten across our region for the Lord Glen a mar a Memorial Prize - an award in memory of a man who did so much to not only improve our region but our nation. And there is no greater satisfaction than the work and commitment young people do to help others being accredited nationally.”
